true, that's a great piece of software, and it will convert flacs to mp3 (stripping out any metadata i might add), altho i do tend to prefer dedicated, single-function applications, but yes, TLH will certainly do the trick

First you decode to wav, then encode the wav files to mp3.
That's how I got it to work anyways.

You don't have to do it like that. Go to Format->Convert encoding format, then add the files you want to convert. Under Target format, select mp3, and set the bit rate to how you want it (VBR 200 is about standard, I use CBR 320 because I'm anal).
